Flame scanners are a crucial part of a boiler's safety system. They identify potentially dangerous "flame out" conditions when ignition has ceased and continued addition of fuel could cause a furnace explosion. As such, flame scanners must be reliable, rugged, perform consistently and be built for long lasting service.

Alstom has provided reliable flame detection technology for decades. The LIMELIGHT™ Exacta Flame Scanner is now available in a remote head configuration that can be installed in a variety of applications. Depending on the fuel being fired, it can be provided with flame detection technology that employs any one of the following:

  • Ultraviolet (UV) (280 - 320 nm)
  • Visible Light (VL) (400 - 700 nm)
  • Broad Range (BR) (400 - 1100 nm)

The LIMELIGHT™ Exacta Flame Scanner Remote Head Assembly consists of a Flame Sensor Remote Head (FSRH), Flame Signal Analyzer (FSA), and Superior flame detection, reduced mounting adapter.

Customer Benefits

  • Superior flame detection, reduced nuisance trips and design flexibility
  • Compatibility of mounting remote head configuration in high heat or space congested locations


The LIMELIGHT™ Exacta Flame Scanner Remote Head is another example of the Alstom commitment to provide products and services that extend equipment life cycle, improve availability and decrease the total cost of ownership.
